Pingree Statement on Death of Al Qaeda Leader

Following news from the Biden Administration that the U.S. has successfully carried out a counterterrorism mission killing Al Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri, Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (D-Maine) released this statement:

“More than two decades have passed since the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 changed our country forever. In 2011, President Obama delivered a sense of justice with the death of Osama bin Laden. Now, the man who stood alongside bin Laden to orchestrate the deadliest terrorist attack our nation has ever seen has met the same fate. I commend President Biden and our highly trained intelligence and security forces for successfully bringing justice and closure for the victims of 9/11, their families, and the countless U.S. active and former servicemembers whose lives were forever changed, and many tragically lost, to the ensuing war on terror.”
